Every modem I've had from different providers has had the same IP

Thanks for that information. I found "a manual" for the modem on-line.
It doesn't quite match some of the "features" of Time-Warner's special
version, but it's close enough for government work.

IP address, user name and password are different from the apparent
industry standard, but the manual helped me find the real IP address,
user name & password - it's there in real teeny-tiny print on one of the

Fortunately I keep an 8x Loupe here on my desk.

According to the manual the Ethernet is supposed to be ON by default.
I'll have to read the manual again and figure out how to turn the
Ethernet on if it's not.

I'll wait to test this until the power goes out again. For now, I just
want to use the internet.

It may be that I'll have to exchange the modem - AGAIN! I've come to

designed this shit ASSUME I'm supposed to want.
